Default Re: Help in identifying pipes. Maker? Wood?

The term is considered racist in the UK, and much of the English-speaking world. That's not "political correctness," that's called "making an effort not to sound racist." Language evolves (just as terms that were not considered racial epithets in the US fifty years ago are now, or are considered to be in very poor taste).

Furthermore, our moderators have asked us to refrain from using that word, so let's cooperate.
